SITTING: The Latest Cause Of Death

Don’t you hate it when the latest research published shows SITTING, an event many Americans have mastered over the decades, has become an INACTIVITY (as opposed to activity) we must now FEAR!!

I found it interesting that the basic parameters used to determine the healthiest country came down to 4 subcategories: (1) Life Expectancy, (2) […]
